Ex-CIA agent charged for leaking secrets to NYT
A former CIA officer from O’Fallon, Mo., was arrested Thursday on charges that he illegally disclosed national defense information to a reporter and obstructed justice.
Jeffrey Alexander Sterling, 43, was arrested Thursday in St. Louis and charged in a 10-count indictment returned by a federal grand jury in the Eastern District of Virginia on Dec. 22 and unsealed Thursday, the Justice Department said.
While federal prosecutors did not disclose what secrets Sterling allegedly leaked or to which national newspaper, the dates and other details in the indictment make clear it involved New York Times reporter James Risen, whose 2006 book “State of War” revealed details of the CIA’s intelligence activities involving Iran. Reuters and The Associated Press report that Sterling allegedly leaked CIA intelligence activities about Iran to New York Times reporter James Risen, author of the 2006 book “State of War.”
